About: Directed by Benedict Andrews, the production officially opened July 24 starring Sienna Miller (Maggie), Jack O’Connell (Brick), Colm Meaney (Big Daddy), Lisa Palfrey (Big Mama), Hayley Squires (Mae), Brian Gleeson (Gooper), Richard Hansel (Doctor), and Michael J. Shannon (Reverend). The production at London’s Apollo Theatre features scenic design by Magda Willi with costumes by Alice Babidge, lighting by Jon Clark, music by Jed Kurzel, and sound design by Gareth Fry. The play, written by Tennessee Williams, is set in Mississippi on a steamy night where a family gathers to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. As stated in press notes, “The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real—and which will win out?”
